  Steve thought we should have a cam sync so we could have sequential fuel injection and individual cyls could be adjusted. To late for the cam but he's doing it through the distributor.
 Should be ready for dyno tomorrow and videos :-D

You're spitting 4 gal/minute of fuel in there and want sequential for fine tuning - I love your optimism :) Hahaha jk. It's always good to have more options. I have a dual sync distributor which I just used to run the oil pump but will hook it up now to run individual could so I'm right with you.

  Quite a few adjustments, :-) first an injector wa stuck open, wire in wrong spot. tack not working forgot it was hooked into gage switch :-P then no power to injectors and no spark all that fixed then no fuel
pressure, pump not pushed into hex drive off cam :roll:
  Got everything fixed and she fired right up. No dyno yet but back tomorrow.
Cam sync installed in distributor has a led light mounted on side of distributor come on every time past #1

We have not made any pulls yet.  We had to order a new cam distributor gear because it was worn out and we didn't notice it but AMS did.  Gear should be here on Monday and hopefully we will make some pulls on Tuesday.

The rear end was leaking oil on the dyno and Steve rightfully so didn't want to run it on there until the leak was fix.  So she is back home for about a week until Steve gets back from Kentucky.





You can see the leak below the yolk.

  Well it's hard to see the leak but we needed to replace the seal.We couldn't get it out without taking off the hole seal assembly, then we could knock it out. A lot going on with spacers and bearings when you do that. But we should be able to reassemble it.

 Troy went over to Fearless Gear for a seal and after talking decided to have them install the seal, the big inside O ring , and torque to specs.

 To them this morning picked up this afternoon.

Install Fri or Sat.

Always those goofy little things that throw you back.  Looking forward to hearing noises.

Is that a driveshaft speed sensor? or torque sensor?

 It was a driveshaft sensor that caught fire and never worked. We hooked it up pointing the end of the sensor to the magnetic sensor on the pinion shaft. But for some odd reason ( probably programed backwards) the sensor end was supposed to be pointing away from the magnetic pickup and the wires pointing to it. Bunch of crap.

  See you there :cheers:

  Pinion holder with new seals installed Friday.
  Started our generator to check ok and to see if it would run the welder.
  Welded a broken brace on front body
  loaded generator and welder in trailer then loaded car to take back to AMS next Wed.
